The Story

The Philadelphia 76ers are a storied franchise with a proud tradition that connects to the rich history of our city. This 2021-22 season, we’re celebrating the NBA’s 75th anniversary by looking back on our team’s beloved home from 1967-1996, the Philadelphia Spectrum. Teams are shaped & remembered by the arenas they play in – rivalries are defined, iconic moments etched in memory. The spirit of the 76ers wouldn’t be what it is today without “America’s Showplace.”

And as always, by looking back, we carry ourselves forward inspired by the reminder of how far we’ve come.
